About PWIA – Professional Women in Advocacy believes that when women are involved at the highest levels of policy making, everyone benefits. In order to get and keep our seat at the public policy table, we must be equipped to competently and confidently represent our views. The goal of this conference is to provide women in advocacy the information, tools and contacts they need to be successful representatives for their organization, issue or cause. We achieve this by hosting substantive policy discussions, teaching the latest methods and strategies in advocacy and filling the room with network contacts that help attendees do their job at the highest possible level. This conference is perfect for people working in all areas of advocacy including federal, state and local government relations, public affairs, community relations, public policy, legislation, Congressional relations, community activism, political engagement and campaigns.
